There's joyous news for a family in Texas. Yesterday, we reported that two sixth grade girls from Alief, Texas, we're missing.
Now, family members say Mary Tran Le and Tianny Granja are back home as of late Thursday evening. They were returned by a Good Samaritan.
"Private investigators say an anonymous woman spotted the two girls after seeing news coverage about them. The woman convinced the pair to get in her car and tell her where they lived," reported local news.
The woman dropped them off at one of their homes just after 9 p.m., according to one of the mother's. The mother said the anonymous woman did not want to deal with the police and took off.
They were on their way to the bus stop for their school bus, but they never got on the bus. The families are asking the public's help to find the girls.
Mary is 13 years old and in the sixth grade at Owens Intermediate School. She is described as standing 4' 11'' tall and weighing 65 pounds. She has black hair with brown tips and brown eyes. Her family says she has an olive complexion and pierced ears. She was last seen wearing a blue shirt, blue pants, and red sneakers.
Tianny is 12 years old, and she also in the sixth grade at Owens Intermediate School. She is described as standing 5' 3'' tall and weighing 120 pounds. She has brown curly hair with red tips and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a white shirt, khaki pants, and sneakers.
One of the girl's parents is concerned that the girls are missing as part of a new Facebook challenge. They pointed to the 48-hour challenge, which has kids staying off social media and hiding for 48 hours. Both girls' cellphones are off.
Alief ISD officials are working closely with HPD to provide any information concerning Mary Tran Le and Tianny Granja. They released a statement saying, "We are extremely concerned for their well-being and ask the community to please help in locating the girls."
Thank God that these young girls were found safely! Do you think that the way they were returned home is curious? Let us know in the comments.
